SL LUG 29th April - GPG Part 2 & Best Robot

The next meeting of the SL LUG will take place on Saturday 29th April, 12pm SLT (8pm GMT, 9 pm CET) at Maryport (182,150). As usual you can find the location using the find (Events -> check upcoming -> search for 'Linux')

Dale Glass giving a talk on GPG at the redesigned SL LUG meeting point

The redesigned meeting place with better seating and a stage for presentations went down very well, it still needs some tweaks (and perhaps some more / different seating poses).

If you have any comments or suggestions please don't hesitate to contact myself (ninjafoo Ng). Also, if you have an AV with specific seating requirements we are more than willing to set you a reserved seat fitted with a pose of your choice.

GPG - Part 2

The next meeting will feature the second installment of Dale's talk on GPG, where he will be covering the use of GPG in practice.

'Best Robot' Competition - L$1000 prize!

This weeks competition will be for the 'Best Robot'. It can be an AV, model, something scripted or anything else you can classify as a robot.

Congratulations go to Angel Sunset who wowed the audience and took the prize with a clear majority of the votes.

I spent the remainder of the evening in my big red dress. Well, you can't buy a dress like that and only wear it once :D

Sounds great, and I'll try to make it - I've just discovered this blog and LUG. If I can't make it this time, I'll definitely try to come another time and watch out for the events.

I'm fascinated by your meeting area. Did you build it all yourself, or was it prefabricated? This kind of thing would be really useful for a talk I was thinking of doing.

The seating and stage were custom built for the LUG by myself and Zi Ree.
